Here are my top 3 cooking gadgets from the 2013 Spring Caravan and Camping Show.

 

When you take your motorhome on holiday, the last thing you want is for cooking to still feel like a chore.

 

 

 

 

 

Some clever designers have added in space and time-savers to their 2013 models to make cooking in a motorhome more fun and less stressful (not to mention delicious).

 

The Chausson Suite Garage 5/6 berth, for example, is well equipped for beautiful summer weather, with a pull-out barbecue beside the door.

 

General 1

The Chausson Suite Garage's barbecue stows away easily and safely in an outer locker.

 

It has great placement for ease of use between the motorhome's kitchen and the barbecue, so that you can still prepare salads and drinks inside, with the luxury of using the spare hob-top counter space.

 

But if you'd rather get a motorhome with more a spacious kitchen area for those rainy days, look to Carthago's Chic C-line 1. The whole range has the luxury 'wow' factor which screams chef's kitchen.

 

General 2

The C-Line 1's kitchen is stylish with lots of storage space, and a coffee maker on a drop-down shelf to leave even more counter space free for food prep.

 

With stainless steel sink and a sturdy tap and work surface , a drop-down coffee machine, a 160L refridgerator and the soft curves of the worktop, you can't help but be impressed by the attention to detail in this design.

 

Or you could take the kitchen away from the van, to better explore Britain's beautiful scenery. The Lotus Grill is a handy barbecue that is easy to carry, with everything clipping together, the charcoal contained and sides and base which stay cool so that you can be on the move even while the grill is still on. It also heats up in just 3 minutes to make cooking that little bit easier

 

Compare with other barbecues which Practical Motorhome has reviewed and you'll see that this is easier to transport and greta value for money.

Plus you can choose your favourite of six colours!

 

Another foodie essential is somewhere to eat the delicious meals that you prepare, such as on a folding picnic table like the Gloucester foldaway picnic table from Quest.

 

Other Spring Show favourites of the team include; DFSK's Tiny Cutie camper, launched last week at the show; Bilbo's Space campervan which has a great flexible design; Lunar's most recent motorhome which is part car and part camper and Claire Kelly's favourite motorhomes for kids
